Wizards of the Coast released that the new version of Dungeons and Dragons is in production. This is big news. Most gamers may be skeptical at this point after 4.0 let some of them down. I jumped on board right after the release of 4.0 so I cannot say that I was ever disappointed with it. What makes this announcement monumental is the fact that Wizards is recruiting their fanbase to help them create the new version! This will make or break D&D. The fate of the roleplaying game is in our hands. (Sorry about the dramatic turn…what can I say? I’m a DM!)
I would urge players and DMs alike to not take this lightly. This is the chance to craft the perfect game for decades to come. The foundation of our games and our children’s games will be laid here. Tap into your imagination, reflect on your experiences, and SPEAK. Let’s bring back the glory to Dungeons and Dragons that it had in the old days. Now is the time to voice your opinion and shape the history of D&D. The challenge is upon us and it’s time to fight for the game we love. Roll initiative.
